XSLT - Help!

I am just getting to grips with XML and I was wondering if you could help me
with something that no-one seems able or willing to help with..

I have an XSLT file which should be transforming a straight XML file

http://www.discovertravelandtours.co...cation=Germany

To another XML file

http://www.discovertravelandtours.co...cation=Germany

As you can see the second one is not being output with the element names I
have defined in the XSLT, its just plain text.

The XSLT is given below, all I need is a bit of info on how to make it
output in the same way as the original file (plain xml).

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

<xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" indent="yes"/>

<xsl:template match = "/">

<xsl:for-each select="Booking/segment">

<xsl:element name="res">

<xsl:value-of select="ReservationNumber" />

</xsl:element>

<xsl:element name="Nights">

<xsl:value-of select="NumberofDays" />

</xsl:element>

<xsl:element name="MAdults">

<xsl:value-of select="NumberofMaleAdults" />

</xsl:element>

<xsl:element name="FAdults">

<xsl:value-of select="NumberofFemaleAdults" />

</xsl:element>

<xsl:element name="MChildren">

<xsl:value-of select="NumberofMaleChildren" />

</xsl:element>

<xsl:element name="FChildren">

<xsl:value-of select="NumberofFemaleChildren" />

</xsl:element>

<xsl:element name="From">

<xsl:value-of select="From" />

</xsl:element>

</xsl:for-each>

</xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>

Thanks in advance

Hi,

from a brief look, the 1st problem is that yuor for-each uses <xsl:for-each
select="Booking/segment">

your XMl is of the structure /root/segment (there is no "Booking element)

Hi Pete,

Are you sure you have that the right way round? Looks like the second XML
document is the source (that being the one that has the stylesheet
reference - which is incorrect BTW - in it and the one that has a <Booking>
root element as your XSLT code seems to be looking for).

Anyway, your stylesheet as it stands won't be producing well-formed XML
because there is no single root element.

Maybe your stylesheet should look like...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"
indent="yes"/>
<xsl:template match = "/">
<root>
<xsl:for-each select="Booking/segment">
<segment>
<res>
<xsl:value-of select="ReservationNumber" />
</res>
<Nights>
<xsl:value-of select="NumberofDays" />
</Nights>
<MAdults>
<xsl:value-of select="NumberofMaleAdults" />
</MAdults>
<FAdults>
<xsl:value-of select="NumberofFemaleAdults" />
</FAdults>
<MChildren>
<xsl:value-of select="NumberofMaleChildren" />
</MChildren>
<FChildren>
<xsl:value-of select="NumberofFemaleChildren" />
</FChildren>
<From>
<xsl:value-of select="From" />
</From>
</segment>
</xsl:for-each>
</root>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

Notice that you don't need to use <xsl:element> for what you are doing -
explicit output elements will be cleaner and usually faster (depending on
the transformation engine used).

If you are transforming the other XML file then you just need to change...
<xsl:for-each select="Booking/segment">
to...
<xsl:for-each select="root/segment">
NB. In your XML the stylesheet pi looks like...
<?xml:stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="test3.xsl"?>
but it should be...
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="test3.xsl"?>
(notice it's a hyphen rather than a semi-colon - I know IE will accept the
first - but that's just an MS goof).

Hope this helps

Thankyou for your replies,

Yes you are correct the first link i give is not the same xml doc as the
second link - the second one has the style sheet applied. I included the
first link to show the original un-transformed xml page.

I have put the changes you suggest in place marrow but as you will see from
the following link:
http://www.discovertravelandtours.co...cation=Germany

The output is still "text"
Or at least it is displaying as text, the output may very well be XML and
structured as such but i dont seem to be able to view it that way?

Any ideas?

Hi Pete,

Ah, I see, that's an IE 'problem' - it always thinks that transformations
will produce HTML so it renders them as such (and because there are no
actual HTML tags in your output it just displays the text nodes). You get
the same problem, for example, if you try to output SVG from a
transformation.

Is IE an integral part of what you're doing? Or are you just using it to
view the transformation results - if so, try something else ;)

Have a look at Marrow's XSLT IDE debugger (link below) or XML Spy if you are
looking for a development environment for XSLT.

Otherwise knickup a little VB program using MSXML to d othe transformation
or use one of the many commsnd line XSLT processors (e.g. SAXON)

Yes i am just trying to view the results of the transformation to ensure
that my elements have the new names etc...

Do you have any suggestions of other browsers?

Netscape 7 (latest) does not view it correctly either!

If i do a view source on netscape i do get to see the elements so its not
all that bad...
But the source is just that .. the source... not transformed so im still no
wiser as to wether my transform works...

I notice that the source is as follows:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="test4.xsl"?>
<Booking xmlns:sql="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xml-sql">
<segment><ReservationNumber>116290</ReservationNumber><NumberofDays>1</Numbe
rofDays><NumberofMaleAdults>0<....<etc>Which is basically the untransformed
doc, aim i correct in thinking that the actual source is transmitted to the
browser in xml rather than a server parsed page?Like asp / php which sends
you the rendered result?

Yes i am just trying to view the results of the transformation to ensure
that my elements have the new names etc...

Do you have any suggestions of other browsers?

Netscape 7 (latest) does not view it correctly either!

Hi Pete,

Ah, I see, that's an IE 'problem' - it always thinks that transformations
will produce HTML so it renders them as such (and because there are no
actual HTML tags in your output it just displays the text nodes). You get the same problem, for example, if you try to output SVG from a
transformation.

Is IE an integral part of what you're doing? Or are you just using it to view the transformation results - if so, try something else ;)

Thankyou for your replies,

Yes you are correct the first link i give is not the same xml doc as the second link - the second one has the style sheet applied. I included the first link to show the original un-transformed xml page.

I have put the changes you suggest in place marrow but as you will see from
the following link:

any

The output is still "text"
Or at least it is displaying as text, the output may very well be XML and structured as such but i dont seem to be able to view it that way?

Any ideas?
